An amazing wine; a classic for those looking for Chile's flagship wines. Deep, long and complex with layers of mouth-watering juiciness. Here's your dessert wine.

Carmenere food pairings: grilled steaks, osso buco.

Not only a classic Carmenère, but a classic New World wine. The colour, in a tip of the hat to the name, is deep purple-ruby. Aromas of blueberry pie, cedar boughs, smoked meat, cherry and tilled earth dominate. Dry, very flavourful, but impeccably balanced by moderate to firm tannins and lively acidity. Excellent blueberry and cedar replays. Full bodied with a very long, luxurious finish. There’s a touch of Petit Verdot mixed in with this impressive Carmenère. Enjoyable over the next 6-8+ years.

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
